It’s not just about bowling at this Northern Liberties hotspot

Second Street in Northern Liberties just keeps getting better. Just months after a brand new Foodery opened on the southeast corner of Second and Poplar, which already claims one of the best bars in the city (Standard Tap), North Bowl opened just a few doors down.

Located in a former mechanics garage that was lovingly renovated over the past several years (with plenty of blood, sweat and tears) by owner Oron Daskal, North Bowl is an awesome addition to the neighborhood of Northern Liberties.

With more than 21,000 square feet, 17 bowling lanes, two full bars, an upstairs lounge complete with Italian sofas, pool tables and an arcade, North Bowl is really much more than just a place to bowl. It can be a place to grab a drink, enjoy a casual meal and/or hang out with friends as well.

The setting is striking — retro benches reminiscent of bowling alleys from the 1950s surround the lanes, stylized prints from The Big Lebowski adorn the walls, stained wood accents the sculpted bar, and a glass enclosed pod overlooks the lanes from the upstairs lounge. And the menu of classic comfort food hits the mark too with corn dogs and tater tots served nine different ways.

North Bowl is a truly unique Philadelphia establishment. Food, drinks, billiards, bowling and an address that makes it work — all the ingredients needed for a great night out with some of your favorite friends.
